back regulation, we'll be better off. i have a different view. i think we have to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure that we're helping small businesses and companies that are investing in the united states. that we take some of the money that we're saving as we wind down two wars, to rebuild america. and that we reduce our deficit in a balanced way that allows us to make critical investments. now, ultimately it will be up to the voters, to you, which path we should take. are we going to double down on the top down economic policies that helped get us into this mess? or do we embrace a new economic patriotism, that says america does best when the middle class does best? i'm looking forward to having that debate. >> governor romney, two minutes. >> thank you, jim. an honor to be with you and pleased to be with the president. i'm pleased to be at the university of denver, i appreciate the welcome and the presidential commission on these debates and congratulations to y
are the cornerstonee of my plan. first, education. i agree, education is key for the future of our economy. our training programs right now, 47 of them are housed in the federal government, reporting to eight difffrent agencies. we've got to get those dollars back to the states and go to the workers. the secondary, taxation. we agree, we have to bring the tax breaks down both for corporations and for individuals. in order to not lose revenue, also lowered deductions and credits and exemptions so we can take in the same amount of money when you account for growth. the third area, energy. energy is critical, and production of oil and gas in the u.s. is up, but not due to his policies, in spite of his policies. mr. president, all the increase in natural gas and oil has happened on private land, not on government land. on government land, your administration has cut the number of permits and licenses in half. i am president, i will double them, and also get the oil from offshore and alaska, and i will bring that pipeline in from canada. by the way, i like coal. people in the coal industry feel it i

[ laughter ] >> romney: i have had the occasion of meeting people across the country. i was in dayton ohio and a woman grabbed my arm and said i have been out of
on collective bargaining comes from republicans. all attacks on education comes with -- from republicans. in the case of democrats, this was not a priority, and they were not willing to spend political capital. when we face such a unique economic crisis, we need smart economic policies. immigration reform, the right and left have already proved the benefits of having reform. the center of economic progress released a report that having the benefits of the drink act passed -- the dream act passed -- >> martin luther king said the way that we get a voting platform that would transform america is for latinos and blacks and poor white people to get together. i would add women to that. we have a number of women this year that hopefully they will be voting for what they want. we cannot get all of what we want unless we help someone else get what they want, and that leads to our working together, starting to strategize for 2016, when we made want somebody else to be president forced to change those people in the senate. usually, we'd wait until the last minute then come together. we need to get
a different view. i think we have to invest in education and training. i think it is important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america, that we change our tax code to make sure we are helping small businesses and companies here in the united states. that we take some of the money we are saving as we wind down two wars to rebuild america, and that we reduce our deficit in a way that makes us ablet -- that makes it able for us to create critical investments. it is up to you. are we going to go from the top down, which is what got us into this mess, or do we embrace the new economic patriotism that says america does best when the middle class does best? i'm looking forward to having that debate. >> governor romney. >> thank you, jim. i appreciate the chance to be with the president. appreciate the university of denver and their welcome. congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i am sure this is the most dramatic place you could imagine, here with me. so congratulations. [laughter] this is a tender topic. i have had the occasion over the last several yea
and at the same time we invested in infrastructure and in education. >> it was a different time. it was also the dot-com boom. >> that came at the end, that's right. but most people who look at those years and exclude those years that just preceding the dot-com boom understand that was a very good economy. do you believe or does anybody -- i mean, i would be very interested in grover norquist if he thought the clinton years represented a bad economy and if they were bad tax rates. >> as much fun it would be to relive the clinton years tonight, mr. secretary, i'd love to get grover -- i want you to expand more on this deduction limit. are you saying it might violate the letter of the no tax pledge but it does not violate the spirit? >> no, no. the president -- romney's made it very clear that any tax reform that he approves will not be a tax increase. this idea of having this as an offset for lower rates at least 20% across the board lower. again, paul ryan and the republicans in congress want to take rates even lower. romney's not signing any net tax increase. he's not going to sign a tax in
to cut education funding. kneel nemo all right. we clipped the first part of that, but the president was referring to the comment from mitt romney get the government out of the whole college loan business or cutback on it, that kids could go to their parents, ask for money for college, and that was something that the president really zeroed in on. mitt romney said that was not what he meant and all of that, but he came back with the comment, you're not entitled to your own facts. ed, you were watching this very, very closely, former mcdonald's usa ceo. o delivered the goods tonight? >> wow. the american people won clearly, but romney really brought it home. you can see it very clearly. do you want to double down on the failed policies of obama, or do you want to embrace a clear vision from a businessman that has leadership skills, strategic vision, and can take the country where it needs to go? as a small business guy who used to run a billion dollar company, i tell you, it's miserable right now. if obama thinks for a minute we're not going to find ways around the health care bill, h
will be better off. i have a different view. i think we have to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy, here in america, that we change our tax code to make sure that we are helping small businesses and companies that are investing here in the united states. that we take some of the money we are saving as we wind down two wars, to rebuild america. and that we reduce our deficit in a balanced way that allows us to make these critical investments. now, it ultimately will be up to the voters, to you, which path we should take. are we going to double down on the top-down economic policies that helped to get us into this mess? or do we embrace a new economic patriot. >> that says america does best when the middle-class does best. i am alonging ford that debate. >> reporter: governor romney, two minutes. >> thank you, jim. it's an honor to be here with you. and it's an honor to be here with the president. i appreciate the welcome of the university of denver and the presidential commission on these debates. congratulations to you, mr. presid
are losing their jobs, homes, decent wages, affordable health care and higher education. our civil liberties are under attack. the wealthy few are making out better than ever. >> this is also about whether our nation continues down the road toward totalitarianism. >> sound unfamiliar? as president obama and mitt romney squared off for the first time, we break the sound barrier by expanding the debate in real time to include two candidates shut out of the major political parties. the green party's jill stein and the justice party's rocky anderson. expanding the debate. this is what democracy sounds like. all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. we are on the road in denver, colorado. president obama and republican challenger mitt romney squared off in denver wednesday night in the first of three presidential campaigns. drilling obama in the polls of several battleground states, romney sought to rejuvenate his campaign with an attack on what he called president obama's policies of trickle-down government. >> i am con
the chance to get a great education and get the skills they need to compete. that is the third part of my plan. education is the only reason i am standing here today. son of a single mom. it is the only reason michelle got a chance. the question is are we going to give that opportunity to everybody. right now there are millions of students who are paying less for college because we took away billions of dollars going to banks and we said let's give them directly to students. [applause] so now you have got a choice. we can gut investments in education like governor romney wants to do to pay for tax breaks for the wealthy. [boos] don't boo, vote. or we can decide that no child should have at their dream deferred because of overcrowded classrooms. no family should set aside a college acceptance letter because they don't have the money. no company should have to look to some other country because they cannot find the workers with the right skills here at home. nevada, i wanted, recruit thousands of new math and science teachers, improve early education, create 2 million more slots in communit
for energy policy, education, for jobs. that came across really strong. one comment about $90 billion given to bring jobs where we could have hired 2 million teachers really made a huge difference on that, too. president obama looks like he was uncomfortable. he did not look like he wanted to be there. mitt romney had a good night. whether that will show up at the polls is another story. i think mitt romney has a good shot now. if they get mitt romney in there, it is a win for a america, too. host: of next is bernard in south carolina. hello. caller: how are you doing? i do not understand what the caller was saying because mitt romney did not explain anything. he kept saying he knew how to do it, but he never said how he was going to do it. he brought up a lot about what obama had done, but what is he going to do? if he has a plan to do something, it seems like he ought to lay that plan out for the american people so he can say what he is going to do. to me he is not saying anything. thank you for taking my call this morning. people need to look at the facts and what he is saying before the
or may not have had a high school civics education course. those opportunities are not distributed well in the united states. we cannot assume that young person has had the opportunity to discuss those issues and get registered to vote in my high- school. host: ted joins us from indiana, on our independent color line. are you with us? virginia,n to west democrat line. caller: this is arthur. the corporations are driving the media and that is where we are getting our information from. i have two small kids, one is 1- year-old and the other is four years old. my income is $14,000 per year and don't use food stamps. i hope that this country starts seeing that we don't need to be republican or democrat. we need to be americans. most importantly, you have to look at the president about when he uses a veto and signs laws. he can only sign into law was put in front of him through the congress and the senate and that is where i feel all the problems are at with the donations to campaigns, for the corporations. if you look at wal-mart, they have their factories in china and they pay 13 cents per
'll cut education again. here's a new approach. prop thirty-eight sends billions in new education dollars straight to our local schools, and guarantees the politicians can't touch it. thirty-eight will restore the education cuts from sacramento. so remember this number. thirty-eight. neshek left the team on tuey to be with his wife for the >>> beginning with some very sad news, a's's reliever pat neshek left the game on tuesday to be with his wife for the birth of their son. tonight he tweeted, please pray for my family. my wife and i lost our son 24 hours after he was born. the couple later tweeted there was no cause of death. >>> a's trail texas 5-1. but just as they have done all season, the a's battle back. yoenis cespedes hit what should have an ending fly ball, but josh hamilton shockingly drops the baseball. the a's never look back. >> you know, didn't catch it. i mean, just missed it. so, you know, no excuse for it. >> the a's blew it open at that point. a 12-5 lead in the ninth. then the final out. >> that's going to do it. coco is there and he's got it and the a's have won the
they provided through their children's programming for almost 50 years some of the finest educational content worldwide for our nation's children? absolutely. does it deserve to be on the chopping block? >> that's the word i was looking for. chopping block. thank you for helping me out. >> chopping block. here is -- here's something i would like to point out, soledad. i know in this current economic climate we have to make different choices. however, i was raised by a woman whose philosophy it was to give her children the best education she could not afford. do you understand what i'm saying? >> value in the free. >> we have to make the investment in our children if we expect for them to pay off on that investment through their realizing their most full potential. so there are places where you can cut. there are places where you need to cut. there are places that you just don't cut because it is not right. >> for you that would be pbs. lavar burton, of course, was host andive and producer -- xifr producer of "reading rainbow." you heard mitt romney backtracking on the 47% remark. he says now
. i love education, i want to provide people -- >> yeah, we all want the same thing. it's just whether you -- we want to get to the same place, it's how you want to get there. one example was like over the last three or four years, the president has been able to kind of go unchallenged when he puts forward a lot of things. like small business, that only 3% of small businesses would be affected by the tax increases. we've known all along here that that 3% are the ones that employ 54% of the workers in small businesses. one out of four workers. you never hear that. so when you're able to sort of hide behind a campaign or david axelrod just to see it actually where someone challenged -- because presidents don't get challenged anymore. and to watch it happen stripped bare was something to behold. . >> two points on that. on your point, one of the democratic veteran strategists involved in multiple presidential campaigns made your point to me which is presidents go through an office -- go through their term for four years, they don't have anybody talking to them like that, they don't have a
the right wing, how. whenever the president named a popular policy, more spending on education, more money on medicare, he was for it and he would attack the president for things that were unpopular. so the question becomes can you effectively tie mitt romney to the republican party and its core commitments, both how it acts in the house and the things he has said during the republican debates. and that never really happened tonight. but those of course are the facts of the matter. the idea that mitt romney won't cut taxes on people at the high end of the income scale apreposterous. i think you would agree. obviously if the republicans get into power they are going to cut taxes at the high income and he got on stage tonight and said no. >> romney's problem is that this debate is in 2012, not 1812. we have things we can hit a button to show what he has said before. no doubt mitt romney was at his best tonight but his best is not good enough. when you look at the fact that he's saying that taxes will not go up on the middle class, yet he is proposing all the way through this campaign, dealin
education to lead, while you're still in school, you might find the best route leads somewhere you weren't even looking. let's get to work. >>> the romney campaign is flying high literally and figuratively after a strong showing in last night's presidential debate. cnn national political correspondent jim acosta has the latest. jim. >> reporter: wolf, flying to virginia mitt romney will spend much of the day after the first presidential debate up in the air. but for the first time in weeks the state of his campaign is not. mitt romney took his victory lap after the first presidential debate receiving a sustained standing ovation during a surprise visit to a conference of conservatives in denver. >> i saw the president's vision as trickled down government. and i don't think that's what america believes in. i see instead a prosperity that comes through freedom. >> reporter: it didn't take long after the debate was finished for the romney campaign to turn the spin room into the win room. are you declaring victory, jim, if this was a boxing match, the referee would have called it. after taki
that he was looking to do and creating job growth and education. with education, he presented to be in support of that. one of the things that stuck immediately was he is looking to cut pbs. i can't imagine anyone going growing up without reading rainbow and sesame street. i didn't feel specifics. >> your former u.s. army officer, you served in the united states military. you now work in i.t. you are a supporter of president obama. this was a domestic issues debate tonight. what we didn't hear was any talk about what either one of these candidates would do in finding jobs for veterans. was this a glaring admission? we have a new generation returning to this country from war, but yet we heard no talk of how veterans were going to be provided for in jobs in this economy. >> fortunately, the president has a very clear record of supporting veterans both on the economic side and on the actual defense side. so since it was an economic debate on domestic policy, veteran job act, which the president strongly supported, which was to incentivize businesses to recruit and hire veterans
. borrowing, not to invest in hospitals and education and hospitals, but want to keep people idle. so the next time you heard a conservative say to you, labour would increase borrowing, just remember, it is this a government that is increasing borrowing this year. [applause] so what have we seen? we have seen recession, higher unemployment, higher borrowing. i don't think that's what people were promised. now look, there will be some people who say, and this as an important argument, a single people say there is a short term pain, but it is worth it for the long-term gain. but i'm afraid the opposite is true. you see, the longer you have low growth in our country, the bigger the death toll becomes for the future, and the bigger our problem will be in the future. the longer a young person is out of work, that's not just that for the prospects now. it's bad for the prospect the whole of the rest of their life. into a small business goes under during the recession, it can't just get up and running again during a recovery. so when david cameron says to you, well, let's just carry on as we are and
